Danu’s Irish Herb Garden is a Garden of Healing, Magic, Plant Wisdom and practical living. Here I work to create a beautiful garden dedicated to the Goddess Danu. I grow healing herbs, trees, shrubs, flowers, fruits and vegetables organically and attempt to provide for myself and others.
I am a Herbalist, growing and foraging for the plant medicine that I use to make tinctures, teas, salves and lotions and potions. I only use plants that I have grown or foraged myself so that I know exactly where the medicine comes from. I believe that plant medicine is a radical way to personal empowerment and health on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Working with plants also enables us to connect closely to the Planet, our Mother Earth, en route to good health.
Perhaps you are feeling out of balance or out of sync with the world; you know you need something but you can’t put your finger on it? You may need stress relief, self-confidence boosts or help with grief. Perhaps you would like to reconnect with the Earth, with Nature? You feel that somehow there should be more to life. Maybe you are suffering with digestive issues such as bloating, acid reflux or food sensitivities. Do you have sleep issues, pain or inflammation, for example arthritis? I can also help with hormonal imbalances, learning difficulties and many other physical, mental or emotional complaints.
Do get in touch – I am so looking forward to meeting you and helping you to enjoy radiant health and well-being! I’m here to help you take a first step to feeling truly wonderful, truly connected and truly balanced.
Through my own experiences using Shamanic and Transpersonal Therapies to heal myself I have gained a deep sense of empathy and understanding for those struggling with chronic health challenges, feeling overwhelmed with life and disconnected from themselves.
I am based in the ancient sacred Boyne Valley in Ireland, in the valley beneath the megalithic site of Sliabh na Calliagh (Loughcrew). I am surrounded by the magical energy that drew our ancient shamanic ancestors to this area. I am inspired by the stones that they left on the hills and fields in the Boyne Valley with their cryptic messages from the distant past. When we sit at these places we can feel the power and energy that inspired our ancestors.
As I have connected deeper with the healing energy of our land and plants I have become more drawn to identify myself as a traditional ‘Fear Feasa’ (pronounced ‘Far Fasa’). The Fear Feasa were our indigenous medicine men known as Healers, Seers, Ceremonial Facilitators, Ones who walk between the worlds, intermediaries with the Sídhe, and skilled with the knowledge of herbs.
I use a holistic approach to working with clients, developing a treatment plan depending on what is required. I incorporate the following range of treatments; Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Healing, Chelation Energy Healing, Shamanic Counselling and sound therapy.
Luke Heron, also known as Celtic Fox, is a forager, naturopath and student Herbalist based in Ireland.
He was born and bred in an Irish household in France. He was lucky to have been able to enjoy the freedom of the countryside in a small village in the middle of the Champagne region called Essômes-sur-marne. He spent most of his time outside and was surrounded by local stories about animals, plants and their value. He just generally ran wild in the local forests and through the vineyard hill. His life’s journey brought him to a full dedication to nature. It began after leaving his career behind which he worked in for over a decade after moving over to Northern Ireland. He fell ill, both physically and mentally while working religiously 5 days a week, 9am to 5pm, in between the four walls of an office. After a decade of living under the pressures of modern life and having bad lifestyle habits, his health was down the chute, he never spent time outside and his stress levels where off the chart.
It was thanks to his (re)discovery of a more natural lifestyle and the determination to get better that he found his health again. He received great help and support by herbalists and peers who both treated him and taught him so much.
He wanted to be three things as a child: a gardener, a chef and a doctor. He was told back then that it was impossible, yet here he is, studying and on his journey to becoming a registered clinical Herbalist. A career encompassing all three of his passions. Now that he’s much happier, empowered and ambitious, he wants to share this wonderful new perspective of life with those who will listen through his experiences, workshops, walks and talks.
